After the pilgrimage to the deep north, the soil under my fingernails is finally washed away, handprint whorls cleaned of weed juice stains, thorn wounds healed, aches and pains assuaged, and the worries and woes of this
languishing soul have lightened up.

Now I’m refreshed and glad to be back at Timo Garden. Everything is looking good even tho it’s been very dry. The tipi has been put up too in the meantime.

And the vegetables are growing fine.

Now is the time for watering. I wish I could have taken a bunch of rain with me from the mountains.

I’ve been frantically weeding and preparing the garden so that I can leave it, go on vacation to the deep north and not have to worry about it too much. I don’t think I’ve ever had it so well weeded, but there is plenty more that could be done.

Goodbye Timo Garden.

Now I’m on the bus to catch the night train to Kiruna where I’ll visit relatives and do some wandering in the mountains for a couple of days. Then to Pajala, LuleĆ„, and UmeĆ„ to visit more friends and relatives.

It is very nice to get away from weeding and watering, etc for a while, but how will the garden manage without me.
